Well you blink and it comes around again. I always find that the time in your life seems to speed up the older you get. Christmas used to take forever to arrive when I was a child, yet now it feels like we just finished packing the tree when its time to put it back up again. This is the same for the ACT AIPP Epson Photography Awards. It was like only 8 journal entries ago!! (Not sure if that means I should write more or time has sped up).
I enter the state and national awards for one simple reason. To help me grow as a photographer. I use it as a target to help educate myself, have a creative outlet and to push myself to produce new work. All this helps me grow as a photographer and sometimes as a person.
I was fortunate enough to receive 5 awards in this years ACT awards and also be a finalist for ACT Portrait Photographer of the year.
I enjoy creating imagery. It is as much a part of who I am as say the scars I have on my body or my tattoo's. I would not be able to create imagery like these without the talent and support of the amazing people I get to work with. So thankyou all for helping me be a photographer.
I look forward to creating more and growing a little more.
Enjoy life my friends
